I was first introduced to volleyball around age 7 when my older sister played for her high school team. I was athletic and enjoyed learning new sports especially being a part of a team which involved competition. As the only freshman who played every match on my high school varsity team, I learned that I could work well with a variety of different aged girls and could hold my own on the court. I hope to graduate in the top 10% of my class and attend a university with high academics where I can play volleyball at a high level as well.
Some obstacles I've encountered as a defensive player include being taken off the court when making mistakes or having my libero jersey changed. I learned that I am able to persevere and push through my disappointments to better myself and my team. When I get back on the court, I focus on being more confident. My work ethic is strong and I do weekly lessons and personal speed and agility training. I believe I have a strong character and a desire to be successful.
